Paul Walker Verging on Immoral

Reports that Fast And The Furious star, Paul Walker, 35, was engaged to his long-term teenage girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnall, 19, have been fiercely denied.

Although the couple are not engaged the story did highlight the fact that Paul has been dating unknown Jasmine for over 3 years, that means the pair started dating when Paul was 32 and Jasmine was 16.   Now is it just me or is this age difference verging on Peadophillic?  Jasmine was 16 when they announced they were dating but who’s to say they weren’t dating beforehand. 

Wrong, wrong, wrong

Wrong, wrong, wrong

I though Hayden Panetierre, 18, and Milo Ventimiglia, 31, was a bit wrong and Miley Cyrus, 15, and her model 20 year old boyfriend was also questionable, but Paul and Jasmine have won 1st prize in the sicko category.

I have just one question, what kind of parent lets their 16 year old daughter date a 32 year old?  Some folks have no shame, Paul you were hot but this is sick.   “Fast & Furious” the 4th instalment of the hit franchise hits movie theatres this summer and reunites original cast members cradle snatcher Paul Walker, Homo Hard-man Vin Diesel, Bad girl Michelle Rodriguez and has-been Jordanna Brewster.

Paul Walker take a long hard look at yourself man.

Christian Bale Goes American Psycho

We all know method Actor Christian Bale has a temper on him but this really does take the biscuit.  Back in July on the set of Terminator: Salvation, where Bale is playing the iconic part of John Connor, Bale completely lost it and started to lay into the Director of Photography.

Now on a film set the Director of Photography (DP) is a very important and crucial member of the crew who works closely with the Director, in this case McG.  The DP’s job is to light a scene and make any changes nessasary to get the best look. 

Apparently when Bale is doing a scene he doesn’t like any movement at all, he has to be centre of attention and the poor DP bared the full brunt of Bale’s wrath in this case.  Thinking back to the allegations in the summer from Bale’s mother, it’s not so hard to believe that he could have assaulted her and his sister.  The guy is a psycho.

18 year old Dev from west London is known to British audiences for his role as Anwar in E4 teen show ‘Skins’ but it is his first movie role as Jamal in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ which is really generating buzz. 

Today saw Dev nominated for a SAG Best Supporting Actor gong and although there is stiff competition in this category from the likes of Josh Brolin, Robert Downey Jr. and the late Heath Ledger being nominated shows Dev will be a force to reckon with and has a long career ahead of him.
